Heather and David Foundation


Heather Ryan and David Dube are pleased to support a new apprenticeship program for emerging artists and early career artists at the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival that are current students or graduates of the University of Saskatchewan’s Drama Department.  This three way partnership involves six apprentice artists this summer including Jensine Emeline (Festival Technician), Emma Thorpe (Fight Choreography Apprentice), Miranda Hughes (Wardrobe Apprentice), Jenna Berenbaum (Acting Company Apprentice), Kelly McTaggart (Apprentice Stage Manager) and Connor Brousseau (Music Apprentice).  Since establishing their foundation in 2006, Heather and David have contributed to many Saskatchewan charitable organizations in areas of need and that match their passions. The couple has deep ties to the University of Saskatchewan and a long list of philanthropic contributions to initiatives that benefit students and graduates as they pursue their chosen profession.
